File Picker in IE 11 (WP 8.1)

We have all by now heard the disappointing news that Windows Phone 8.1 will not have a File Manager, but the OS does now have a more capable file picker which means we can still do many of the things we want to do with the built-in and 3rd party software.

In the above video uploaded by Windows Phone Lovers we have a demonstration of the File Picker in action in IE11, where it allows then to download MP3 and MP4 files from various web services and then open them later using other apps, which I think gives much of the freedom we desire.
